Sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls, and uneven floors are problems commonly faced annually by hundreds of thousands of homeowners. Homes and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subjected to extreme moisture conditions or lack proper drainage. A shifting foundation may result in structural damage to your home and a loss of your investment.
Indications of foundation settling problems include:
- Foundation walls that are buckled or bowed
- Doors and windows that stick or don’t open properly
- Cracks in foundation walls
- Cracks in exterior walls
- Cracks in interior walls and ceilings
- Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors
